CAUTION: a new online drivers license renewal application became available 7-22-2013 thru the DOT website https://mymvd.iowadot.gov/ . However, make sure you are on the Official DOT site; there have been numerous reports of customers attempting this online renewal and not realizing they were on a bogus site that charges fees and does NOT renew the license. 

You can find multiple State of Iowa forms for Driver's License and Motor Vehicle at www.iowadot.gov .
